Party Favor throws it back to arguably one of the best years in dance music with his new single “2012”, a quintessential “twerk music” tune that still hits just as hard in the present day. The Los Angeles-based artist pays homage to his musical roots with a mid-tempo, bouncy track that is infused with heavy, hip-hop-influenced bass. The drop in “2012” should send any seasoned dance enthusiast back to the trap stage when the genre was still in its infancy. “2012” holds personal meaning for Party Favor, whose career really took off in 2012, officially making him an international, touring artist. The release is kicking off the new year following Party Favor’s last releases “Blame” ft. Naïka on Mad Decent and “Circle Up” ft. Bipolar Sunshine on BMG.
With one of the most diverse and accomplished resumes in the industry as an DJ, producer and boundary-pushing artist, Party Favor is a true force of nature. His music has helped the festival trap and twerk scenes rise to unforeseen popularity in dance music, and frequently blurs the boundaries between electronic, rap, reggae, and many other genres. Party Favor has worked as a producer for some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Lil Jon, 2 Chainz, Migos and ASAP Ferg. “2012” follows Party Favor’s recent hit “Blame,”which is currently climbing the Billboard’s Dance/Airplay Radio Chart, recently entered the Top 10 on the Mediabase’s Dance Radio charts and it is still continuing to gain momentum every week. Party Favor has amassed an impressive over 135 million plays on Spotify and Soundcloud which include hits like “Bap U”, “Scrape ft. Gucci Mane”, “Caskets ft. Njomza” and “Give It To Me Twice ft. Sean Kingston & Rich The Kid”. Last year Party Favor added a massive world tour to his list of accomplishments, where he ignited stages at major music festivals including Coachella, HARD Summer, and more. Stay tuned for what Party Favor has up his sleeve next!
